Thanks everybody for the kind comments about my biker version of this mini challenge. I was a lot of fun and quite easy. Hope the birthday boy enjoys all the wonderful versions of his photo. He'd be mad if he didn't.

des - really good job, and an interesting direction to take our biker/astronaut/hippie/mariachi -- right back into the button-down work world.

Thanks for the comments. I loved all the wacky depictions but I figured I would try something that seemed almost opposite his personality.
Here's what I did. Found an image of a man wearing suit, then using photoshop erased unwanted elements and sized suit to fit our portrait. I used the clone stamp to touch up background and remove longer hair. Also used clone stamp to remove mustache and clone bottom lip to create thin upper one. Then used the healing brush to add some texture back into this area, and also to soften just a couple eye wrinkles. I used the paintbrush to whiten teeth a bit, and fussed with lip line and mouth edges. I flattened the image, then used channel mixer to make it black and white. Settings were monochromatic box checked, red +80, blue +14. I increased the overall contrast by +10. Then duplicated the layer. On the copy layer I applied a tiny gaussian blur to soften just a bit, then went to hue/saturation and colorized image with a bit of sepia toning, and also reduced brightness by about 10. Then I set this layer to overlay mode at 40 percent opacity. I thought it gave a nice look to the suit persona, allthough I really like some of the brightly done portraits!

I'm not sure what got into me dragging up this old thread. For some reason, I felt compelled to try making this into a characture sketch like a carnival artist might do. Partially successful maybe?

Distort tool on several selections then some filters:
Accented Edges
Smudge Stick
Sketch:Charcoal on a duplicate & masking the man's face.

He's 53 by now. LOL

Lot's of stuff; usual filters that I always seem to use (Paint Engine, Impressionist, etc.). Also used GIMPressionist Canvas preset to add additional texture and, in the begining of the rendering, I Overlayed a Toadies metalwork filter.
